I did a stint of catsitting over the weekend, for friends who live a couple of streets away. The first time I dropped round to replenish the food bowl, I didn't manage to deactivate the burglar alarm in time and had to crash around looking for the light switch while it shrieked. Filled with visions of my friends' holiday getting interrupted by emergency text messages, I managed to shut it down and fired off a quick DON'T PANIC text.

By this time, unsurprisingly, the cat was nowhere to be found.

She was more apparent on Sunday and Monday, loudly telling me how hungry she was before I'd even got the door unlocked (although I had to deal with the demands of the alarm first, since the cat wasn't going to up the volume and start texting her owners after twenty seconds had elapsed). The desperate meowing was clearly all an act, since she wasn't hungry enough to eat the dead mouse she left in the hallway for me.

I did a final feed yesterday, as my friends had been held up on their return journey, and left this advisory to prevent the cat wangling another meal out of them when they got back:



See, a rabbit would've known to dispose of the note through the application of some vigorous nibbling. =:) (Seriously, ever watched a rabbit eat? It's amazing how quickly they can chow down!)
Even a rabbit would have been out of luck, because I tweeted the pic to the humans concerned :)
That cat looks like they're saying "I can READ English, two-legged feeder person, and I am not amused."

She was very unamused...until she got held upside down. Then she went all purry :)
She was so, so cross about anything I did that wasn't related to feeding or fussing her. She obviously knew that was the purpose with which I'd been sent.
ahh what an adorable cat <3
She is very sweet and likes to be held upside-down ^.^
Hmm. I dont think I should try that at home. My cat prefers to sit on my shoulder like a parrot :p
Different strokes for different cats :)
haha, they are almost like people!
